I know that it is not completely related to the course but I noticed something strange after I installed the VM to run the appliance. I have inexplicable missing space from /C: without the VM being installed there. In addition, the free space on /C: changes from time to time without me installing anything. For example one day it will be 15GB, some minutes/hours/days later it will be 12,5. Then it will change back to 14 and so on.
Now, I read somewhere that the VMwares sometimes can cause a disk swap since they're using not the computer's RAM but the physical space to run (correct me if it's wrong). Is it true in general and in this particular case? Can someone explain to me how this VM works e.g.what memory it uses etc.?
P.S. Of course, there might be another reason for this but I'm still curious about the VM.
Thanks in advance!
